And the Stocking Were Hung by the Chimney With Care
This is all 5 stocking. The far one on the L is on a snowman holder and it the dog's. The 3 in the middle are on the letters for JOY and are (from LtoR) mine, Andy's (go figure!), and Isabel. The 2 on the far R are for the cats.
Close up of our handmade stockings. They don't match and that's ok. Things don't have to all match. I have the biggest one!
This is Isabels' stocking. I made it. Had to refresh my sewing skills and make it whenever I had time. I had to go back & forth between machine stitching and hand stitching depending upon the steps. I just finished it today.I am pretty happy I go it done and proud of myself. I think it's a good looking stocking. It certainly would have been easier to purchase one, but then it would not have been as special.
Now I just need to make a new ornament this year. I like to make an ornament easch year for the tree and this year I will make one for Isabel.
